Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Sep 12, 2018

           Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Des Moines County, Mary Ann Brown, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Danilson, C.J., and Vogel and Tabor, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (9 pages)

            Anthony Jones appeals the district court’s dismissal of his medical malpractice action against Great River Medical Center on statute-of-limitations grounds because Jones’s original electronic filing before expiration of the limitations period omitted counsel’s signature.  OPINION HOLDS: While we find Jones’s resubmission relates back to his original filing, Jones did not serve Great River within ninety days after filing the petition.  Jones did not show good cause for the delay. Accordingly, we affirm the district court’s dismissal.
